Emmett Cherry Festival is Back and Celebrates 85 Years This Weekend
There is definitely no shortage of events happening in the Treasure Valley this weekend with all the outdoor movie events, PRIDE parades/parties, and the Cherry Festival 🍒
Emmett is less than one hour from Boise and will host a carnival, festival fo cherries, and so much more.
The Cherry Festival is celebrating 85 years with a 2019 theme of "Picking Kindness. What's Your Superpower." Emmett and the Gem County get together each June to celebrate the city, the community and the traditions of the Cherry Festival.
There will be over 50,000 Idahoans that will head out to Emmett to take part in the many activities that take place all weekend. This doesn't cost to enter but there is plenty to drop some coin on!
